Free Networking & Keynote Speech Event
After what only can be described as a whirlwind year for digital, 2014 is set to be an explosive year for innovation and discovery across our industry. The Digital Pond has a series of meetup events planned in 2014 that will inform and inspire designers, developers and marketing professionals alike.
Our first meetup will be on the 6th February in a brand new location in Clerkenwell (click the link above). Following up from the huge success of the User Experience (UX) Strategies meetup (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nVUVCMtZQHI) in September, we have brought together some of the biggest names in UX and web design to talk about the importance of creating enjoyable environments and journeys online.
We're massively excited to have the brilliant Andy Budd (https://twitter.com/andybudd) along to join us for the first Digital Pond of the year. Asides from being co-founder at Clearleft, Andy is nothing short of a UX legend, imparting his expertise and experiences at many notable design conferences and events across the globe.
We are super-charged to have confirmed the magnificent Anna Dahlström (https://twitter.com/annadahlstrom). Originally from Sweden, Anna started her UX career in Denmark but has called London home for the last 8 years. As a freelance UX designer she's worked with numerous agencies as well as with the BBC on the Olympics. We cannot wait to hear her story!
Last but not least, we are delighted to announce Cyber-Duck’s very own Matt Gibson (https://twitter.com/DuckyMatt) will be speaking for us. Matt spearheads all design work at Cyber-Duck from the early research and planning stages, to sketching and designing interfaces, right through to helping deliver working code.
